I Haven't Forgotten You My Darling Pup
I can’t believe it’s been a whole year,
since you left me torn and in bitter tears.
Did you know close to me I keep a lock of your fur,
foolishly afraid your memory will become a blur?
You are in my heart wherever I go,
holding on to the memories of not long ago.
So much has happened this year’s time,
but I know you know we’re all going to be fine.
Your time with us we still discuss,
with those you left behind in such a rush.
We sorely miss you my precious loving pup,
your photos will I keep like a priceless gold cup.
And if the Lord deems us worthy of sharing heaven with you,
I pray to see you happily surrounded by all my departed pups.
I love you my dear Poppy. This love of mine will never die.
